Dont worry...the eye patch is temporary. Usually it is suggested to people with diplopia - result of the misalignment of the two eyes relative to each other. It can be corrected by an eye patch, corrective lenses or therapy. Now you will know how pirates feel...=) sorry...didnt mean to make a jooke of it. You will be just fine!

Who goes to court today???

ok, dye your hair already! I stopped doing mine when I moved out of California.

no, I've never been suggested an eye patch. I've been wearing glasses since I was about 10. one of my eyes is so nearsighted they can only correct it so far. without glasses I can only see the big E on the eye chart and with glasses, I don't make it to where they have 4 letters. If my other eye were that bad, they'd take away my driver's license. maybe you might want to call the eye doctor, and talk to him, or at least ask them if they can put you on the cancellation list, so you could get in there a little earlier.

Ed's a1c was 6.3 so he beat me, but he's got some other new issues that are somewhat worrisome to me. also my bp is up and he's changing my meds for that. my mother has been a never-ending source of tremendous stress and guilt on me.

Yes Doris - dinner. That's where I went. It wa to celebrate a friend's b-day. I know you can't understand that concept very well. I had a great time. You should try to get a friend so you could go out sometime. LOL Talon and I are now heading out the door to go grocery shopping. I will have to point her out what to get so she doesn't try to kill me. I'm sure you would like that!

Good luck on your doctor's appointment. I hope all will be fine. It is best until then you avoid stairs...maybe refrain from going out alone. It is not fun getting dizzy...and you alone! Tell me what happens okay?
